I honestly don't understand why Nintendo had to hit these guys with a DMCA takedown notice. It's a game made by Metroid fans, for Metroid fans and it was free.

Thirty years ago, Nintendo released its action-adventure game Metroid on the Famicom platform. This Saturday, to coincide with the anniversary, a group of game makers pooled their resources and released their AM2R (Another Metroid 2 Remake) game, for free. In response, Nintendo sent in the lawyers.
